Pop Up Art Show final shot number 2

So the Pop Up Art show has entered its final few days…

To mark this there is a special ‘taster’ exhibition, featuring works from some of the past exhibitors, plus lots of new ones. Every artist shows approx three works and the mix of styles / works makes for a really fun show.

Here are a couple of ‘panoramic’ shots of the opening private view night, which hopefully give one an idea of the range of works.

The show is on until late Monday night so do get along if you are in the area!

I’ve just installed my ‘Art Deco Uplighter’ in the home of the lucky person who bought it from my show!

To my surprise they actually wanted it as a downlighter – luckily that made very little difference to the way it needed to be affixed to the wall and I must admit it worked really well that way around. The halogen bulb throws a very attractive pattern on the wall and the light cast is just the right strength / warmth.

Here’s a very quick shot – I wish I had made more of them!!

New steampunk poster

Here’s a shot of a new bespoke poster I’ve just produced for someone as a result of my recent exhibition.

It features a custom background to complement the wording, and has been framed in a white, A3 sized mount and frame.

Perfect for any steampunk-themed Xmas present – do get in touch if you want one for your very own!

The exhibition of my steampunk lighting and general sculptures has now come to an end.

It was a fantastic 10 days – I met some fascinating people, swapped lots of ideas and stories with other artists, and, maybe best of all, even sold a few pieces!

Highlights were the ‘Art Deco’ lamp (I could have sold this four times over if I had more than just the one!) and also my new range of ‘Music Stand’ lamps (I am going to knock a few of these up n the next few weeks so will post some pictures /details etc).

My welded steel ‘Mr Bobbly Head’ sculpture (shown in the last post) has also sold, and is now installed in a wonderful new home here in St Albans. I will miss him!

The next artist to be features in the exhibition is the surrealistic photographer Roger Dorey – do go down and check out his amazing photos if you are anywhere near the show…

This week saw the opening of the 10 day exhibition of my steampunk items and sculpture. After an extremely hectic couple of days setting up, I am really pleased with the results! We had an opening night Private View on the first day, attended by none other than the Mayor of St Albans as well as lots of friends and general punters. Smooth jazz for the evening was provided by my brother, who I must say did an excellent job! Here are just a few selected photos both from the night and also of some of the general works on show / for sale. Do get in touch if anything strikes your fancy!
